    Autumn harvest purchases

    Been to a local koi dealer today and treated myself to some nisai from the autumn harvest. All 3 are around the 40cm mark. Kept FOC until April, just canít wait to get them in my pond.

    Not the best pictures as screenshots from a video.

    Course mate! Place called LE Koi in Nottingham. Stocks a lot of Israeli koi usually but on rare occasions gets some quality Japanese koi in from the harvest.

    Take a look on their Facebook page - honestly prices are super competitive!

    Has some amazing Kujaku from takahashi. Was very very tempted to get one but decided to hold out lol

    Nice Showa.

    Which one is the Takahashi, top left?

    Looks to have broad shoulders.

    Nice one.

    I've had a Takahashi male for 2 years, didn't grow much in the first year (it jumped out and got injured) but this year it's stretched quite a bit. Purchased at 32cm and now about 50cm.

    Very nice choice there Dom, been to Le koi about 20yrs ago didnt buy any koi but got my sequence pumps there and valves and loads of bits found them very reasonable.

    They have a massive car park and it was easy to get my truck in there

    Thank you both roll on April so they can join the family!

    Yes John very reasonable prices - they have some great prices on their Japanese autumn harvest fish.

    There is a beautiful 43cm+ Kohaku from yagenji that he has that was so closely a purchase also. Only £385 as well!
